President's Report

Happy New Year.  I hope that 2020 is a great year for all of us personally and professionally. 

As we enter a new year, we have an open book and we can fill the pages with goals and opportunities that will help us make 2020 a successful year for BOMA Tucson.

One of our opportunities this year, is to go before the Mayor and the City Council and find solutions that will decrease the financial burdens and improve the safety of our tenants, owners and property managers which we face on a daily basis due to the vagrants trespassing and vandalizing our commercial properties.   Our task force has met several times since the fall and are preparing now to meet with the mayor’s staff on February 5th.  Our goal is  to promote change in policies and procedures to better emphasize the health and safety of residents and business owners within the Tucson community through collaboration and enforcement.

Our next task force meeting is scheduled for January 21, 2019 at 9::00am at PICOR’s office, 5151 E Broadway; Suite 115.   In attendance will be members from the Tucson Police Department and hopefully Steve Kozachik, Councilmember, Ward 6.

In 2020 we will be holding our monthly committee meetings right after our monthly luncheon .  By holding the committee meetings on the same day as our luncheon, we hope that will encourage members to participate in committee work. The following members have agreed to chair the following committees: 

  • Membership Committee: Heather Baron and Barbara Camacho
  • Programs/Education Committee: Betsy Johnson and Lora Steffen
  • Communications/Social Media Committee Teresa Ryberg and Cathy Sams
  • Gov’t Affairs / Advocacy Committee: Eileen Lewis and Sierra Howard
  • Community Affairs:  Ken Fredrick


Our first committee meeting will be held after our lunch on February 25, 2020.  Please consider joining one of our committees. 

Our January meeting is our 20/20 Economic Forecast Breakfast meeting on January 28, 2020  and will be held at Skyline Country Club.  Breakfast and check in is from 8:00 am to 9:00 am and our program will start at 9:00am. 

Our keynote speaker is Juan Ciscomani, Senior Advisor for Reginal and International Affairs Office of the Arizona Governor.  Juan will address economic growth for Tucson and Southern Arizona.    

In addition to our keynote speaker, we will also have speakers from ADOT, Eller College of Management, Arizona Corporation Commission, Volk Company and Tucson Foodie.

Hope to see everyone on January 28th
